is today leaves four u.s. service members dead. as the anti-american protests over a u.s.-made anti-muslim film spread across the arab world from africa to afghanistan to australia, here at home, big questions remain about the safety of u.s. personnel overseas. and how all this will affect campaign 2012. we'll cover it all from all sides with the president of libya's general national congress mohamed magariaf. u.n. ambassador susan rice, and republican senator john mccain. for analysis we'll look to former u.s. ambassador to israel martin indyk. the president of the council on foreign relations, richard haass. and "new york times" columnist tom friedman. plus we'll talk to the chief washington correspondent of the "times" david sanger. "time" magazine deputy international editor bobby ghosh. and cbs news political director, john dickerson. this is "face the nation" upon captioning sponsored by cbs from cbs news in washington, "face the nation" with bob schieffer. with >> good morning again. and here is the latest news from overnight. four american military people have been killed in
as the republicans want to go. you know, i was struck-- i've been through a lot of conventions-- you mentioned '04s supposed to speak and al sharpton took my time away. ( laughter ) i don't know if you remember that. i was supposed to be on prime-time. >> schieffer: he was sort of the clint eastwood. >> right. you mentioned clint eastwood, the lonely gunfighter. that's what the republicans were projecting. it's all individual responsibility. yes, but i think the democratic partly is about family, about unity, about bringing people together. we're all in this together, we're all trying to rebuild the economy together. and i think you're going to see this convention not appeal to the base, not have a bunch of nasty attacks. you're going to see a convention filled with promising young hispanic speakers, you're going to see diversity, you're going to see multiculturalism. you're going to see a real effort to engage the middle class, engage the american worker, and say that we want to be positive about this country. we're not going to be a bunch of negativists. >> schieffer: well, let me ask you about
, which is to say, that the u.s. and israel would need to act some time before iran actually got a weapon. i think the phrase they used was, "you can't let iran get a screwdriver turn away from the weapon." but then the candidate himself gave an interview to abc, and i don't know if he forgot his own position out here or if he just misspoke, but he seemed to draw the line closer to where president obama is, which is to say, he said, "well, we're in the same place. we can't let them get a weapon." well, it's a crucial distinction, and maybe the distinction we heard in the early part of your show, between war and peace, and it's certainly one that during the campaign the candidates are going to have to be a little more explicit about. >> schieffer: john dickerson, mitt romney, of course, spoke out very quickly, even before the-- we knew that an american ambassador had been killed and the trouble in bek. he spoke out just as kind of the demonstration were beginning in cairo, and he basically accused of administration of apologizing. where is all that now? well, i think in the short term, the
are not as well off as we were before george bush brought us the bush job losses,s bush recessions, the bush deficits, the series of desert wars, charged for the first time to credit cards, the national credit cards -- >> schieffer: but i mean, governor richardson and stephanie cutter. george bush is not on the ballots. >> but we are making progress. >> in terms of the question, "are people better off today than they were four years ago?" i want to remind you what was happening four years ago at this time. in the quarter before the president took office, we lost three million jobs. our country was bleeding. our financial system was on the verge of collapse. we were passing bank bailouts to ensure that our system could stay afloat. that's what was happening before the president took office. >> and, bob, the best difference and the best progress has been made in the area of foreign policy. president has gotten us out of iraq. s we getting us out of afghanistan. we've got free trade agreements in latin america we have a president that brilliantly dealt with the situation in libya, with the arab
seal is in material breach of his secrecy agreements with the u.s. government. what do you think of that? >> norah, all seals, like anybody who conducts classified missions or has access to classified information, sign an agreement with the government. i haven't seen what the agreement says, but i'm willing to believe that the fact that he didn't give the book in advance for clearance probably puts him in some kind of breach. but the big question is, did he reveal anything in this book that is going to materially hurt the united states? and, you know, the story that he tells is a fascinating one. no one can replicate the idea of going up the steps where bin laden is at the top. but all the really fascinating debates about the bin laden raid i think happen it's political debates that might affect the election-- happened before the raid was approved as the president changed the plan. and the book doesn't really take you into that. and it doesn't seem to take you that much into their operations. >> michael, is there an argument to be made that given-- going after bin laden that this

happened in libya, where our u.s. ambassador was killed. they said, susan rice said on this broadcast last sunday, after the president of libya said this was the work of terrorists, she said, no, this was because of a spontaneous demonstration that had to do with that film. now they have come around to saying, well, yes, it was a terrorist attack. is mitt romney making enough of this? i haven't heard too much from him on that. >> bob, what struck me-- and i have nope the director of national intelligence for years. he's a bright man. he's a competent man. this administration in effect is now saying, "oh, don't blame the united nations ambassador. don't blame the white house spokesman. don't blame the president, because our intelligence system failed so decisively." i don't know which worries me more, the idea that the intelligence system took weeks to figure out the obvious-- although we are told in fact they had information the day before the attack because the video that went out from al qaeda asking that the ambassador-- somebody be killed on 9/11 was a day earlier. so i don't know whet
